In this thread we are considering Khufu's sarcophagus which was placed in Khufu's pyramid, once known as Khufu's Horizon, but now referred to as the Great Pyramid.

The Great Pyramid was the largest of the three pyramids of Giza, but not the big one in the middle which was Khafre's pyramid. The Great Pyramid is closest to the edge of the escarpment, and couldn't have been built any closer to 30 degrees north of the equator. The angle of the equinox sun is 30 degrees from the vertical at mid-day and the pole of the night sky is 30 degrees above the horizon.

A modern geographical perspective should not be imposed on the design as if the architect saw the earth as a globe, but the observed angles may have been regarded as 1/12 of the circumference of a circle, hence Khufu's Horizon has solar and stellar aspects.

The circumpolar stars were the most important stars according to Dr I.E.S. Edwards, the foremost authority on the pyramids of Egypt in latter half of the twentieth century, with several editions of his book on the pyramids having been published across six decades, so there was plenty of time for others to challenge his ideas.

If anyone ever has any new ideas on the pyramids then it is a good idea to become very familiar with the work of Edwards, and then reconcile the new ideas with his perspective. My new ideas are simply the old case, as we shall see from the case of Khufu's sarcophagus. The shape of the true pyramid is associated with the ascendancy of the solar cult in the fourth dynasty. I recently wrote an essay for myself of over 10,000 words, so matters are clear in my mind.

I had hoped that the label of 'Coffer' would limit discussion to the stone sarcophagus of Khufu in the King's Chamber of the Great Pyramid without referring back to a previous thread on Khafre's sarcophagus or the notion of a wooden coffin inside the Coffer.

Are you interested in my new model or not?

Mark
